My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I was drawn toward the field of medicine as a young boy looking through science textbooks that my father had acquired during his university studies. I knew early on that I wanted to be a physician. I was excited by the prospect of learning everything I could about how a human being could grow and develop into a functioning person with so much capacity to think, work, create and experience the natural world. Medicine was the perfect fit for me when I had to choose a career. I enjoyed the intensity of my medical education and despite long and difficult hours, I found medical school and residency training to be very fulfilling. I selected the broad field of internal medicine as my focus in order to continue treating the "whole patient." I have been practicing in an outpatient setting at St. Mark’s Hospital for over 20 years and have loved the opportunity to work with and help my patients in managing the challenges of acute and chronic diseases, including diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, asthma, COPD, arthritis, anxiety and depression, to name a few.
 
I continue my goal of bringing my training and knowledge of health and disease to benefit those who have placed their trust in me. I find that in today's world, the doctor-patient interaction can feel too rushed.  I want to be able to spend more time teaching patients and helping them to understand more clearly their medical conditions and what all the medical testing and results mean. I also want to be able to take the time to help my patients be proactive about improving their health and decrease the worry and fears that may come when health changes occur.  
 
I am committed to empowering individuals with the know-how to live healthier, fuller lives. This partnership with MDVIP will enable me to assist my patients in preventing illness through a better balance in life, including attention to exercise, stress management and nutrition. I also want to be able to work with you when ailments do come along, as well as try to detect problems early. My new MDVIP-affiliated practice involves a detailed annual wellness exam which will allow us to work in depth on your current concerns and to prevent new problems. I will also have the time to work you in for appointments with me when you first notice concerns, thus avoiding delays in getting you back to feeling well. I look forward to working together with you in achieving a healthier life!

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Aslami

from Stephanie in UT March 24, 2020 for Stephen S. Aslami, MD

Dr. Aslami has been the most attentive and thorough dr. I have been to. He takes the time to explain things and never feels rushed. I know that when I come in to see him, I have his undivided attention. He doesn't just treat the symptoms, but helps to see if there are underlying reasons for the problems. I have a lot on my plate with a husband who has Alzheimer's and is needing… See more

from Karen in UT March 16, 2020 for Stephen S. Aslami, MD

DR. ASLAMI HAS SAVED MY LIFE LITERALLY!! MORE THAN ONCE! WHEN HE GAVE ME MY FIRST EXAM WAS OVER 20 YEARS AGO. MAYBE 25 YEARS. HE HAS SAVED ME FROM DYING FROM A DRUG THAT WAS PRESCRIBED TO ME BY ANOTHER PHYSICIAN THAT I'D BEEN SEEING BEFORE MEETING DR. ASLAMI. AS I RECALL, IT WAS WAY AFTER HOURS YET, DR. ASLAMI AND HIS NURSE MET US AT HIS OFFICE. I WASN'T WITH THE PROGRAM AT ALL… See more

from Bill in UT March 12, 2020 for Stephen S. Aslami, MD

I am most thankful for the MDVIP program and the high level of care I'm now receiving from Doctor Aslami and his staff. This is the kind of care I once imagined would be available only to the very wealthy. It was my lucky day that Doctor Aslami chose to be an MDVIP provider.

from Sherren in UT March 11, 2020 for Stephen S. Aslami, MD

Dr. Aslami, hard to believe I have been seeing you for over 15 years. Time has gone so quickly. Thank you for being there thru the ups and downs with me. You have handled my health with great professional skills and advice. Thank you for being such a compassionate person, detailed and personable, keeping me healthy enough to keep up with Ondjre. He's always thankful after a visit with you… See more

from Rena in UT March 11, 2020 for Stephen S. Aslami, MD

From the first day I met Dr. Aslami he LISTENED! Because of this he has saved my life TWICE. He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and compassionate. He's been my doctor for close to 20 yrs. I can't find the right words to express my gratitude for his kindness and support!

from Shelley in UT March 10, 2020 for Stephen S. Aslami, MD

When no one else believed me, Dr. Aslami did! He KNEW something was wrong, but WHAT was the question. He stuck with me for 3 long months until it finally showed its ugly head.....a blood clot in my lungs! Since then I have trusted one doctor-Dr. Aslami!! We have become good friends and I have told him everything about my kids, my husband, me and my dogs! He listens to everything I have to say… See more
